Here we are again: It’s Gusti di Frontiera time! 

Schools have started, families routines are progressively getting back at “normal” speed, harvest is almost completed and so it’s probably a good idea to celebrate in the best possible way: great food, good friends and superb wines.

Gusti di Frontiera is back: the annual eno-gastronomy festival that take place in the most eastern of the Italian cities: Gorizia.

This week this small Friuli Venezia Giulia town has been bustling with people setting up to 250 stands and marquees, cookers, 100s of tables and chairs, beer drafts, fridges, barbecues, roasting spits and everything needed to cater for thousands of people that will visit Gorizia during the next 4 days and nights.

There will be 20 nations including for the first time Argentina and Cuba. There are almost 2 km sq. of city centre space allocated to this festival and there will be a bus service getting from the main parking spaces around town to the heart of Gusti di Frontiera.

Barbecues and cookers will be lit up today at 6pm.

If you can’t make it ask your friends to grab some food and drinks for you and then follow the festival through these web cams.

Follow the music and your nose!
